No, we are not. Where the fuck are you getting this idea from??
The average sale price of a new car is now over $37000
That's nearly double from where it was 20 years ago.
You used to be able to buy a truck for under 20 grand. Now, unless you don't mind sitting on a church pew and having literally NOTHING on it, you can't get one for under 30.
$37K today was $24K 20 years ago. So that sounds about right. Inflation has been 50% over the past 20 years.
With great freedom comes great responsibility.
